WIP Wednesday: Almost There!

I'm very proud to present an almost finish on Somebunny!

I ended up finishing all the cross stitch first because my DMC 535 vanished somewhere and I was finally able to stop by Michaels last night and get 2 skeins (to be safe!). I love how it looks already and can't wait to get back to the backstitch tonight. I don't know if I'll have a finish tonight, but it's certainly possible. 

I'm really looking forward to turning this into a little pillow for DD. She has a big bed now and although there's a pillow on her bed, she doesn't really use it. This would be decorative too, but I think she might like to carry it around with her. It should be maybe 6 inches or 7 inches square when complete, so that's not too big for her. I'll wait and give it to her for Valentine's Day and I'll work on finishing it up over the next couple weeks. 

Jo mentioned on her blog about finishing things on a Sunday, and that's a good goal. I don't have a ton of stitching time generally on Sunday evenings because it's after ice hockey, and that will last until the end of March I think. Taking an hour to iron, etc. might be a good idea after hockey instead of getting entrenched into my stitching spot and grumbling that bedtime comes too quickly on Sunday nights. ;)

Also, I'm signed up to Kerry's Theme-tas-stitch 2017. She's chosen different themes for each month to stitch on, and since I tend to follow these things better with blogs than I do with Facebook I'm happy she's taken on the challenge of hosting. February will be "Focus on a Finish" and I think I can make that work well with my weekly rotations. I'll post more about my plans when Somebunny is finished. Join us if you're interested! 

Happy Stitching,

Tiffstitch

  13. Oh Tiff, your bunny is adorable!! I love the colors in the project. It is a great idea to dedicate a day to finishing projects. I have a drawer full of finished projects all just waiting to be on display. I'm hoping to finish several of them this year. The theme stitching sounds fun, too. I'll look forward to seeing what you choose.

  18. Oh my, I love this little bunny. A wonderful idea to make a little pillow for your DD.
    I have the intention to join Kerry's Theme-tas-stitch, but not earlier than July because at the moment I don't have a lot of time to get busy with SALs.
